Two Thumbs Up


This was given to me and I like it a lot. It definitely softens while it cleanses. It did not produce a lather, which I prefer, but it still worked in conjunction with some of its other products to improve the look and feel of my skin.

Great Cleanser


I have been using this cleanser for 8 years and love it. I have sensitive skin and allergies and it is no problem. It cleans really well.

Very nice!


After a discussion with one of the SkinCareRx consultants, I chose this cleanser to suit my oil-free and sensitive skin needs. It's terrific for gentle cleansing and I will continue to use it. Thank you, Shelby, for recommending it!

Gentle on skin


I have been using it for a few weeks now and I like it. I haven't noticed significant results, but its gentle on my skin. A little goes a long way. I was never able to use the pump because the pump has been broken on it since I received it.

Great for sensitive skin!


I have been using this product for a few years now, with excellent results. It is great for sensitive skin as well as for rosacea treatment. I always use it and I am taking it with me when I travel.

One year review - Hyper-pigmentation cleared!


I purchased this product a year ago and still have all most a half a bottle of the cleanser left & the serum. This is a very good product. Yes any AHA or BHA can be a little drying at times especially if you use them daily. When you experience drying change how you use the product. Try using it once a day instead of twice or for some every other day. I mainly purchased Nucelle to deal with some hyper pigmentation and mild acne. I am very happy with the results. I am an African-American female in my 40's dealing with adult acne. Of the AHA products Mandelic is one of the safest for women of color. Many people continue to state the cleanser doesn't foam. It doesn't foam because it is free of the drying foam agent Sodium Laurel Sulfate. I am also one of the few who like the pump bottle. I think the pump is designed the way it is so that you do not over use the product. Also when cleansing with this cleanser dampen your face first and then apply the cleanser. The hyper pigmentation around my hair line is gone. I love the serum that they sell as well. Also, if you are dealing acne the best combination to control acne (emphasis on control - no product will stop acne) is using an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) with a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) product. Find out what combination works for you. I combined this Mandelic (AHA) with a 2% Salicylic Acid (BHA). I believe my skin cell turnover rate has decreased with age which is the main culprit of my adult acne (I didn't have any as a teenager & up until my mid 30's). You need the Salicylic Acid to get into to the pore to clean it out (remember to find a % that works for you through trial & error) and an Alpha Hydroxy Acids such as Mandelic Acid, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Azelaic Acid, or Kojic Acid which assist with resurfacing by turning over dead skin cells. Remember to use a sun block when using these products. Also it's best to start with a low AHA & BHA percentage and build your way up to a higher percentage. I do not recommend women of color (brown, dark brown & olive complexions, etc. . .) to go go over 10% .Remember to all ways do a patch test like behind the ear and wait 24 hours to see if you have a reaction to any product. ... I hope this helps someone out there.

Worth it.


I am a teenager with combination skin and a bad case of acne on my cheeks and forehead area. I was just about to give up on everything until I was given the NuCelle product trial kit including the Mandelic Cleanser, Mandelic Serum, Anti-Oxidant Night Lotion, and SPF17 Lotion from my esthetician. Wow! Am I happy and grateful to come across this! :o) It really DOES work. In two weeks, my skin cleared up and looked so much better. It was a lot smoother, softer, and healthier. The cleanser is very gentle and effective; it doesn't dry out your skin and what not. My only complaint is that it's quite liquidy so it's difficult to lather it. But other than that, it's worth it.

Great cleanser


I have normal/combination skin with melasma & love this product. It leaves my skin feeling very fresh & clean after use and as so many other reviewers have mentioned my skin does not feel at all dry/stripped afterwards. This is not a product that foams up so if you like that sort of thing it's probably not for you - I use about 7 pumps at the end of the day and 3 or 4 in the morning when my face is clean. I would recommend wetting your face then applying the cleanser (rather than adding water to the cleanser in your hand) to make sure you don't loose any down the sink as the product is fairly runny. It is definitely NOT a make up remover though - it will take off light sunscreen, tinted moisturiser etc but forget it for mascara or anything heavier duty.

Gentle Acne Care


I love this cleanser. It's gentle, but also helps to take care of my oily/acne prone skin. Doesn't dry out the skin.

I am 45 soon to be 46 years of age and I've had oily and acne prone skin for most of my adult life. I too went to dermatologists, tried OTC and more expensive department store products and nothing seemed to work. After reading the reviews on this and other products on this website I decided to give this a try and I must say, I was skeptical at first but am I glad I purchased the cleanser and toner! They are by far the best cleanser and toner I have ever used. They make my skin soft and supple, they take away the oily shine and the acne has cleared up remarkably well. Folks, if you are skeptical, please try the cleanser and toner. You will not be sorry. I'm now going to purchase the 10% serum as well as some more toner and cleanser for me and for my 21 year old daughter. One suggestion to the manufacturers though, come up with a better pump / delivery system to get the product out of the bottles. They don't work that well. Other than that, AWESOME products!
